THE days are longer and it is time again to take advantage of the outdoor playground that is the South Burnett.

According to this adventurous Kingaroy couple, the region offers great opportunities to get outside and have fun.

Jade and Rowan Tatnell have always lived an active lifestyle and prefer bike riding over channel surfing.

Mrs Tatnell said the South Burnett offered a unique array of opportunities for outdoor activities.

"Whether it is boating out at Bjelke-Petersen Dam or mountain biking between towns, you can do it all here in the region," she said.

Mrs Tatnell's passion for an active lifestyle has led her to a physical education teaching career.

And she will begin at Nanango State High School in 2013.

She said having fun doing outdoor activities in the local area was a great way to stay fit.

"It is about living life to the fullest, getting out in the sun and enjoying the fresh air," she said.

"Rather than sitting on a treadmill in the gym, you're able to keep fit and do some really fun things while getting to know people."

As the new year approaches and people decide on their resolutions, Mrs Tatnell suggested people consider taking up outdoor activities.

"We think people should just get out there and try it," she said.

"People might love it and discover a new hobby in the process."
